IDS Prolactin

Product Description

The IDS Prolactin assay is an automated in vitro diagnostic device intended for the quantitative, determination of prolactin in human serum and plasma on the IDS system. Results are to be used in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory data as an aid in the diagnosis and monitoring of reproductive and pituitary dysfunction in adult and paediatric populations.

  • Standardised to the WHO 4th International Standard (83/573)
  • Specific for the 23kDa monomeric form of prolactin
  • No sensitivity to high dose hook effect up to 450 000 mIU/L
  • No biotin interference by employing direct antibody-solid phase coating principle
  • Well-established reference intervals for adult and paediatric populations
